VIDEOS

“What Would You Say” is a song, with music and lyrics by Delenn Jadzia and Preston Towers, from the upcoming musical film Homebrewed: A Musical Quest. It shows two of the main characters, Flora and Appleonia, as they confess their feelings to one another in the safety of the fantasy universe. Partially funded by the Raab Fellowship, Homebrewed was created by Delenn Jadzia, Hannah Z. Morley, and Preston Towers to tell the story of LGBTQ+ individuals who use their fantasy tabletop game as a way to process their identities and grow closer. (2019)

ONLINE PUBLICATIONS

Learning at Lago Preto, by Quincy Lee (2017)

“As I finish my research, and my degree, I am stuck wondering the extent to which thinking about the rainforest negatively — focusing on our projections for its future demise — limits our ability to learn from the practices of the people who live there attempting to preserve it today.”

Quincy’s research was supported by the Raab Writing Fellows program, and his article was published in the online magazine Souciant.
